I was starting to get worried that we were up to our necks in remakes until I saw the trailer for Silent Night. It's a remake of 1984's Silent Night, Deadly Night which I love to watch on Thanksgiving (because it's not quite a Halloween or Christmas film). Apparently, the original caused a ruckus because of its Christmas theme, but I hardly see that happening with this one. Just like the My Bloody Valentine and Black Christmas remakes, I expect Silent Night to pass along quietly through the cold, cold winter months into bargain DVD bins everywhere.
Hell, that's when I'm watching it. For those of you who actually want to see Silent Night when it hits theaters though, it'll be out November 30th.
